Court Decisions and School Finance Reform.
LaMorte, Michael W.; Williams, Jeffrey D.
Educational Administration Quarterly, v21 n2 p59-89 Spr 1985
Since 1970 approximately half of the states have challenged the constitutionality of state educational funding methods under equal protection or educational adequacy grounds. A review of court cases finds no clear trend towards acceptance or rejection of state provisions for school financing but does reveal a heightened awareness of inequity in school finance by legislators and state educational policymakers.
